Giants quarterback Eli Manning admitted after Thursday's 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins that playing without much of its starting receiving corps has been difficult.
Since losing Odell Beckhma Jr., Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris to season-ending injuries in Week 5, and with Sterling Shepard missing four of the past six games, Manning has been held to under 225 yards five times, including a season-low 113 yards on Thursday.
"Well we've lost a lot of players," Manning said, according to the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard. "We're missing our three starting receivers for a lot of the season. We've got some new guys in doing some good things, we're missing some linemen, so we're missing some key players on offense, and it's tough to catch up and make up and make some of those plays with the playmakers that we lost."
